What's in a name?
Bistro 163 is one of 50 such Community Cafés that have sprung up throughout the US. This model addresses hunger issues in a dignified manner while providing an avenue for building relationships.
We chose the name “Bistro 163” as it communicates our intention to serve fresh food prepared from scratch, using locally sourced ingredients, a “farm to table” approach. The café’s location, on Perry Street in Port Clinton, is part of State Route 163 stretching from Oak Harbor to Marblehead, our target service area of Ottawa County.
